[closed] metatag images link to where? (1 post)

    Hi everyone,

    I've been struggling with trying to get the meta tags link on my website working so that when people click on the green "Share" button (from the ShareThis plugin) at the bottom of my posts, it shows the image, title and description. The Share button works on my pages and single posts, but NOT on my main blog page.

    I'm currently using Wonderm00n's Open Graph plugin, but I'm thinking of scrapping it (since it only does half the job). I've asked for help on the plugin sites (Wonderm00n, ShareThis), but no one seems to be able to help me.

    So now I'm thinking that I just want to keep it simple and put these meta tags right into my code:

    <meta property="og:title" content="TITLE OF YOUR PAGE" />
    <meta property="og:type" content="TYPE OF YOUR PAGE" />
    <meta property="og:url" content="YOUR PAGE URL" />
    <meta property="og:image" content="URL OF IMAGE TO BE SHARED" />
    <meta property="og:description" content="DESCRIPTION OF YOUR PAGE" />
    <meta property="og:site_name" content="SITE NAME" />

    I've put in some of the code below, but I have no idea how to fill in the rest. Will someone please tell me what is the right code?

    <meta property="og:title" content="www.anniehearts.com/blog" />
    <meta property="og:type" content="TYPE OF YOUR PAGE" />
    <meta property="og:url" content="www.anniehearts.com/blog" />
    <meta property="og:image" content="URL OF IMAGE TO BE SHARED" />
    <meta property="og:description" content="DESCRIPTION OF YOUR PAGE" />
    <meta property="og:site_name" content="anniehearts" />

    Do I require the "http://"? The "/blog" after anniehearts.com? Where do I link my images to if I use WordPress for my feature images and NextGen Gallery for all the other images? If I link it to a particular image, will it always use that image or will it (preferably) use the thumbnail associated with that post? How do I get each post's description to show?

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks!
